Doubting, Seeing, and Hearing

Nov. 7-13, 2016

Luke 7:18-23

This week we pray for…

  • our students to deepen healthy relationships with peers, faculty and staff, resulting in mutual encouragement and development of Christian faith and character.
  • students who are having financial difficulties; we ask that all their needs will be met.
  • the members of the Whitworth Orchestra as they perform in their fall concert, Let America be America Again: Compassion in Community. Please let them and the members of their audience know the joy of worshiping the God who gives the gift of music and beauty.
  • our campus worship programs: Chapel Community Worship, as Mindy Smith preaches on Tuesday and we celebrate the Lord’s Supper together on Thursday; Hosanna, on Tuesday evening; and AWAKE, on Wednesday evening.
  • Matika Wilbur, as she gives a lecture, “25 Lessons from Indian Roads,” sharing stories from her biographical photography of the 562-plus sovereign Native American territories in the United States.
  • Thursday’s Pirate Night fund-raiser for Whitworth athletics. We ask for community, fun, and abundant provision for the needs of Whitworth Athletics to allow its pursuit of excellence as part of Whitworth’s efforts to help students honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity.
  • the families of the four Whitworth alumni who have fallen in combat over the years, and for the current students who are part of the US Army ROTC program that brings together Whitworth and Gonzaga students for training and preparation for service. We pray with thanksgiving for all of those who have served or are serving in the armed forces in our nation, particularly for those with Whitworth ties.

Lord, help us not to doubt when we cannot see the reasons for our life circumstances and when we feel that we cannot hear you speaking. Help us to look to the cross, knowing that when we look to you, the Author and Finisher of our faith, we will find peace and rest.
